Yes, and I backslid. But that was back when the show still had the capacity to irritate me. Now I just don't give a hoot.

I am getting very tired of Cathi in TAR. Every word that comes out of her mouth sounds patronizing. Maybe she doesn't mean it that way, but she certainly sounds condescending.

Yes, she's annoying. Another show...I watch Harry's Law mostly for the courtroom scenes. The high point of each episode is Harry's summations, much the way many episodes of Boston Legal built up to Alan Shore's flamboyant speechifying. Harry's words are compassionate and persuasive, and Kathy Bates is absolutely perfect for the role.

The show has actually taken a turn toward the interesting. Cochran the Nerd switched sides in tribal council, and as a result all three of Savaii tribe's alpha males are on Redemption Island, together!

TWO tribal councils Wed. night, wow. I don't blame Cochran for flipping. He did everything he could to earn a firm place in Ozzie's tribe, but they made it clear he was along as cannon fodder and he'd never be one of the chosen few. Keith was especially snide to him. All Jim's talk about how they'd protected Cochran, that was just bullshit. They needed his vote. And now the strongest alliance in the game (Ozzie, Jim, and Keith) has been shipped off to Redemption Island where they'll have to go at each other to stay alive. Serves them right.

Yes, that's going to be an interesting three-way challenge. I'll admit to having a soft spot for Cochran just because he's so articulate. On the whole, this group has done less slaughtering of the English language than their predecessors have done, Brandon excepted. Cochran, however, has a way of putting his finger on the nub of a situation and expressing it clearly without indulging in the backpatting the alpha males are prone to. But in a game based solely on jockeying for position in whatever social hierarchy is established, Cochran must have looked like easy pickings. All Ozzie's tribe had to do was treat him decently and they would still be in the game.

The only downside to Cochran's flipping I can see is that it provides more food for Coach's ego. Coach strikes me as being slightly more mature this time around, a little more realistic. But basically he remains a smug man in love with himself, and that's not going to change.

Ha, Rita. You picked the wrong time to bail. Coming back?
